. joining us now from the north lawn of the white house austin goolsby the president's adviser. the president was pretty critical of john boehner in his speech in cleveland. boehner sfas the president is serious about finally focusing on jobs a good start would be taking the advice of his recently departed budget director and freezing all tax rates coupled with cutting federal spending to where it was before all the bailouts, government takeovers, and stimulus spending sprees. he is referring to peter orszag the budget director during the obama administration who wrote a piece in the "new york times" this week for the next two years keep tax rates including for the wealthy exactly where they are right now. >> look, i think representative boehner is a little confused about what peter orszag was suggesting and threw in on that second bid let's go back to the final bush budget of 2008 as if that were the gold standard we wanted to return to when in fact that was the final culmination of exactly the policy that got us into this mess. >> to be precise peter orszag was not recommendi

for us down there, susan.in >> reporter: i think as things wind down or certainly as the city wakes up, you are seeing more and more people who are in this area, people who obviously have made a conscious decision to want to be as close as they can to the ceremony. so you are seeing not only family members who attend theer ceremony being here and some who are escorted in but other relatives who come from the area who come in on their own to attend the ceremony every year. we are also hearing church bells ringing as they have throughout the morning during various points of the ceremony as well. that adds to the emotion of the moment. we also talked to police commissioner, ray kelly, about this morning. he told me, new yorkers, in particular, are very resilient. y, they feel the pain of what happened and every day, he also said, it is in the back of everyone's mind what happened on that fateful day. people here remain mindful that something might happen again. he said in the future but he insisted that new yorkers are ready for whatever might lie ahead. certain certainly, the city has ta

you for coming. you will have to bear with us or especially me if during this announcement i get a little bit emotional. this has been, of course, for us a very, very difficult, trying time. we have been in very much thought and prayer over this whole period. a lot of times we were asked what would it take to call this thing off? well, we have thought it over many times. we felt very convinced that we should do this. we're thought about what would have to happen for us to call our event off? as we prayed about that in the past we did have one idea, that this idea that we put out in prayer to god, that if he wanted us to call this off if we've accomplished our goal, then our thought was the american people do not as a whole want the mosque at the ground zero location, that if they were willing to either cancel the mosque at the ground zero location or if they were willing to move that location, if they were willing to move it away from that location, we would consider that a sign from god. we have or he has been in contact with the imam in new york city. i with the imam here, i wi
